Our Thanksgiving





I just wanted to share a couple of pictures from our Thanksgiving. We were joined by Ptr. Edwin and his family along with another American man and his wife (Mark and Angeline) that live close to us. We had a great evening. Dulce and Rina did a wonderful job cooking a delicious Thanksgiving meal!

God Bless,

Teaching Opportunity



I was given the opportunity to teach a class at the Asia Baptist Bible College in Sta. Mesa, Manila. There are around 100 students currently enrolled at the college, which has been in existence for over 35 years. Dr. Boyd Lyons, president of the college, asked me to teach on the subject of Ecclesiology, the doctrine of the church. I taught the 5th Block which consisted of four weeks, Tuesday - Friday, 10:00am - 12:00pm. There were 17 students in my class and thankfully, they all passed! It was a good opportunity for me to teach this class, and I am thankful that the Lord provided wisdom and safety travelling.

Church Fellowship Night

Two Sundays ago, we had a church fellowship during our evening service. We started the evening with some songs and Bible reading. Then we played a hula hoop game and a “get to know you better” game. And of course, what is a Christian fellowship without food! We had spaghetti and soup for all those who attended. It was a fun night of fellowship and encouragement!

Youth Lock-in



Several weeks ago, our youth group had a lock-in at church. There were around 20 of us who slept over night at the church. We played some board games like chess, chutes & ladders, jenga, and a memory game (the “Finding Nemo” preschool game which they really enjoyed!). We even had a pair’s badminton tournament in the auditorium. After the games, we watched the Disney Pixar movie “UP,” on a projector in the auditorium while eating some popcorn and some other snacks. We ended the night by splitting up the youth group and having devotions. We praise and thank the Lord for giving us the opportunity to spend time and get to know our youth better.

The following morning, after only 2 or 3 hours of sleep, we had sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school, take a trip to Asia Baptist Bible College (which is in the church of Dr. Boyd Lyons). The kids got to sit in on one of Ptr. Matt’s lectures on Ecclesiology and were then able to stay for the chapel service which was also given by Ptr. Matt. We are glad that the youth were exposed to Bible college and saw what it’s about. The time we spent with them was a blessing and we just ask that you continue to pray for them, that they will stay faithful in church and most importantly to God.
